Saturated ruby-red. Multidimensional nose melds black raspberry mulberry toffee minerals rose petal and roasted oak. Great sweetness volume and depth thick but magically light on its feet. Grows broader on the back half with no loss of shape. Firm underlying backbone is currently hidden by seamless fruit. Finishes with big but noble tannins and terrific grip and subtle persistence. This and the hugely concentrated L Eglise-Clinet may well turn out to be the two top wines of the vintage. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 1998 Petrus is unquestionably a fabulous effort boasting a dense<br/>plum/purple color as well as an extraordinary nose of black fruits intermixed<br/>with caramel, mocha, and vanilla. Exceptionally pure, super-concentrated, and<br/>extremely full-bodied, with admirable underlying acidity as well as sweet<br/>tannin, it reveals a superb mid-palate in addition to the luxurious richness<br/>for which this great property is known. The finish lasts for 40-45 seconds.<br/>Patience will definitely be required. Production was 2,400 cases, about 1,600<br/>cases less than normal. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2040" 98/100 pts<br/>(Robert parker - Wine Advocate - April 2001)<br/><br/>
